14th District Councilmember Kevin de Leon personally attended the August 3 BID Board meeting to speak with our stakeholders and to commend our BID safety team for heroism during a major alarm fire on San Pedro St. on June 22.  De Leon presented each officer with a certificate of appreciation from the City of Los Angeles. The Councilmember also updated everyone regarding his work to secure overtime funding for LAPD specifically for downtown patrols, ongoing Sanitation cleanups of areas with heavy impacts from encampments, streetscape improvements along 7th Street, and increased housing opportunities for homeless individuals. Councilmember de Leon’s office has been outstanding in its support of our BID and we thank him and his staff for their partnership.
